Ecogres

Ecogres: quality and sustainable development, together with a new brand of high quality production technology that fully complies with ethical principles and environmental protection.
 

 

  • Reducing waste
  • Recycling processing scrap
  • Reusing natural resources

 
are the key objectives that Alfalux has set for the products in this line, in a view to continuous research into high quality solutions and environmental protection.
 
 

Ecogres is a glazed porcelain stoneware dry pressed complying with the UNI EN 14411 BIb Norm and conceived especially to uphold the following values of enviromental sustainability:

 
 
RECOVERY OF 100% OF RAW SCRAP MATERIAL FROM PROCESSING        
RECOVERY OF 100% OF FIRED SCRAP MATERIAL FROM PROCESSING
100% of raw scrap material and 100% of fired scrap material arising from the processing cycle are reused in the phase of paste preparation, reducing the need to mine new raw materials and thereby making a significant contribution to protecting precious natural resources
 
 
RECYCLING AND REUSE OF PROCESSING WASTE WATER.
Production of porcelain stoneware calls for massive amounts of water. Reuse of 100% of the waste water deriving from the production cycle generates a 60% decrease in the water needs of the plant.
 
 
REDUCTION AND RECOVERY OF ENERGY SOURCES (COGENERATION)
Recovery of the heat contained in the firing exhaust makes it possible to reduce the amount of natural gas necessary in preparing the paste. The technologies used in this area achieve a 25% decrease in the use of new energy.
 
 
DECREASE IN EXHAUST EMISSIONS INTO THE ATMOSPHERE        
In order to demonstrate the utmost sensitivity to the environment, Alfalux has made major investments in production technologies. This has allowed us to achieve superior control over smoke and fume emissions into the atmosphere by greatly reducing emissions levels by more than 10 times the limit of the already strict legislation on environmental protection in force in Italy.
 
                       
 
CONSTANT MONITORING OF THE RESPECT FOR PRODUCTION ACTIONS
An added value for sustainable development
